AMD moving to fabless design?

Posted on Tuesday, June 19 2007 @ 18:37:01 CEST by

The Inq reports about the conclusions of a new report from Citigroup about AMD:
The chip Co. has long had troubles manufacturing, and has invested heavily in new capacity both in America and Germany. But its inability to get chips made - witness the delay in Barcelona and R600 - is leading many to question just how effective its manufacturing is.

Which may contribute to the report from Gleny Yeung, Citigroup analyst, who tells readers that AMD has confirmed that it is looking to scale back its in-house manufacturing. This will result, Yeung reckons, in a selling off of manufacturing capacity in Dresden and New York and more outsourcing to TSMC and Chartered.

Without confirming the story, AMD told journalists that "We're looking to find ways to extend [the outsourced] model beyond research and development to the full range of the manufacturing supply chain... That could [extend] from increasing the amount of processors we send out for chartered manufacturing and could also include things like establishing partnerships on the manufacturing side."
